Bug Description

When displaying help by using "usb-creator-gtk --help" on the terminal, the help screen is shown and a segmentation fault error occurs, most of the time.

This only happen when using the latest trunk available from launchpad (revno 422, 0.2.52) with ~100% occurence rate, and on the Ubuntu 13.10 platform.

The problem is not reproducible using version 0.2.50 on Ubuntu 13.10.

Sorry, this actually does happen on trusty. I didn't notice it because it happens after all the help has printed.

I don't see a segfault, but I see a pesky error message about "g_hash_table_destroy" apparently wanting to find a window to destroy when there are no windows (like when you run with --help or --version).
